The schools also agreed to continue the ‘relay strike’ initiated last week after the official suspension was issued by teacher unionists, and approved a joint statement inviting other schools to engage in similar protest gatherings throughout Slovakia. “We are aware of the fact that we won’t achieve anything on our own. If we can join together, we won’t get scared or bought off, and we might see that our demands - for which we launched the strike on November 26 - are met,” reads the joint statement.

The statement was read out aloud after a concert organised by one of the participant institutions (Novohradská Secondary Grammar School), which featured music performances by bands including Puding Pani Elvisovej and Para.
